Event description

Description

Please join us on Tuesday the 28th of February to celebrate the opening of 'Material Legacies, in the Landscape of the Lost' at the Stephen Lawrence Gallery.

Material Legacies brings together a collection of works that encapsulate the essence of three people’s lives. It explores how making can create meaningful encounters with the dead. These bereaved makers, from The Hospice of St Francis, invite you to experience how they have crafted their loved ones’ physical and digital heritage.

The stories are told through their physical engagement with materials and their collaborations with creative practitioners. Together the works speak of loss and self-discovery: hundreds of pin pricks turn memory to matter; clay fuses with video constructing the ‘Trainman’; and fingertips massage a message of textured paint leaving their imprint on hand and canvas.
